    Depends on the wheel.

    Audi A3 s line vs BMW 1 series m sport

    To be fair the comments generally suggeset the 1 Series is ugly. I don't think most people think it'll be less reliable than an A3 though.

    Advice Please on 19inch alloys... to go or not to go

    I ran 225's on my 8x19" BBS CH's. A good tyre size. I went for 215's on my Bentley's just because I think the wider wheel suits a stretch.

    Selling up for an Exige

    I had a VX220 Turbo a few years ago, but got no pleasure driving it when it was cold and wet. On a nice day it was awesome. I know plenty of people did get on with them as a daily driver, but we're all a bit different.

    Selling up for an Exige

    If you want the Exige as a daily driver, yes. If not, then it's a fantastic move. The handling is in a different league. But.... if you're used to S3 performance, and enjoy the speed in a straight line as well as the twisties, you should get a Supercharged Exige, otherwise you could get bored...

    Audi A3 s line vs BMW 1 series m sport

    Just my feelings on a few bits: X6 - if you don't regularly carry back seat passengers, then the X6 makes sense. You need to drive one, or be driven in one to "get it". There's something quite surreal about the speed they can carry around the twisties whilst being the size of a semi-detached...

    Audi A3 s line vs BMW 1 series m sport

    I disagree with quite a lot of that! The coments re the 1-Series are right to a point, but I think BMW would also have been criticised if they made a FWD 1-Series having always sung the praise of RWD so strongly. I think the E92 Coupe looks fantastic, the E92 M3 in particular. Knowing a couple...

    Dreaded wheel question

    No, they'll rub on the struts. Also the tyres will rub on the arches. With 10mm spacers the wheels will fit nicely, but you'd really want 215's for stretch and less rubbing.

    Audi A3 s line vs BMW 1 series m sport

    To be fair though, has the 1 Series cannibalised BMW's 3 Series sales? I don't think so... And as much as we may not all like the 1 Series, a lot of people do - there's no shortage of them on the roads. Not driven by enthusiasts, they're mostly company cars for sales reps, etc.

    Audi A3 s line vs BMW 1 series m sport

    I've got to agree with the comments on the ride. A mate of mine had one for a couple of years and hated it. He had an E46 Coupe before, and a couple of E92 Coupes since. He likes his BMW's, just neved bonded with the 1 Series. The ride was so hard, a couple of speed bumps between his house and...

    Smallest wheel size on A3 3.2 S-line quattro?

    No, they're the same, just different colour and badge

    Audi A3 s line vs BMW 1 series m sport

    To be fair, most of the people I know (aside from on here) that drive an A3 are girls. Small hatchbacks aren't very manly, whether of the Audi or BMW variety. As for Susan Boyle - if you want to imagine her as a vixen in bed, then go for it, but don't type filth like that....

    Anybody fancy my 18" Cades Berns? (Mesh design - similar to HRE/VMR)

    Not sure how to directly compare - I know the guy behind Cades wheels, and he uses a quality factory, and the wheels seem relatively light and well made. I really liked them, and was keeping them as winter wheels when my Bentley's went into hibernation, but now I'm selling the car, I need to get...
